Is that really relevant here?

When you cite documents that have specific requirements about how to 
cite them, please just do so.

For instance, for IETF IDs (such as MIMESNIFF) the requirement is:

"It is inappropriate to use Internet-Drafts as reference material or to 
cite them other than as "work in progress."
